Vibrant wedding photography for fun couples in Chicago and the Midwest

Two words: HIRE TIM!

Tim was a major part of the magic for us – from engagement photos to wedding day. He was experienced, professional, and felt like a friend in our presence, just capturing all of the best memories. We LOVED the photos and couldn’t be more grateful that Tim was a part of our day. Hire Tim; he is the best!

– Grace and Jesse

We had the privilege of working with Tim and we couldn’t be happier!

Tim was responsive from the start and had great insight into locations around the city for these shoots. He made us feel comfortable in front of the camera; we hardly even noticed he was there. He got us our photos back quickly and captured our wedding day perfectly!

– Nicole and Joe

We loved working with Tim!

We used him for our awesome wedding at the Groundhog Day house in Woodstock. He is fun, thoughtful and super creative with shots. Everyone was just astounded at how they turned out. Tim is stuck with us for life now for all our photo needs!

– Anna and Tim

Amazing skills, flexible, and professional.

Beautiful photography. Easy to get along with. Flexible and honest. Extremely professional and responsive. Patient. Tim is the one vendor that I never stressed about and we felt confident he would deliver.

– Christine and Abishek

Our engagement and wedding photos were absolutely stunning!

You can tell he gave thought and time to the editing process. Tim is extremely professional and even when the wedding party was running an hour behind due to the getting ready process, he never exuded any frustration or anxiety. I will more than likely use him for more big moments!

– Danielle and Edwind

The ideal wedding photographer experience!

Tim not only made us feel comfortable, he actually made the photography experience enjoyable for us. He is laidback, organized, and clearly passionate about photography. The pictures came out beautifully. Not to mention, his services are much more cost effective than other photographers we looked at. I would enthusiastically recommend Tim.

– Lisa and Pat

Tim takes some of the best pictures you will ever see!

What separates Tim is his incredible professionalism and his obvious passion for what he does.Tim somehow can handle large groups of people with tons of different personalities and still get the most incredible pictures! He just seamlessly navigates your big day, never missing a moment!

– Yolanda and Bizhan

You will not find somebody who loves their work more!

His passion for photography is evident in his incredibly beautiful images. On top of that, he is such a pleasure to work with. We literally can’t wait until we need a photographer for another event so we can hire him again, and honestly we couldn’t recommend him more highly.

– Cayla and Eric
